About the Concordia Ballroom

Location

The Concordia Ballroom is centrally located in the city of La Crosse at 1129 La Crosse Street. It is 1/2 block West of the intersection of West Avenue and La Crosse Street.

History

The ballroom was originally constructed in 1891. It was built as a community hall and dance center for the German American community in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The building is on the registry of historic sites maintained by the city of La Crosse Historic Sites Commission.  The ballroom is currently owned and operated by the Concordia Aid Society, a non-stock, non-profit corporation of volunteers who rallied to save the site in 1995 when there was a proposal to tear it down as a site for a Taco Bell parking lot. Society members invested their own money to save and rehabilitate the building as a site for dances and receptions.

Features

  • Table seating for 200 but the tables and chairs can be moved and the hall reconfigured to conform to your wishes.
  • Stage area separate from the dance floor with its own sound system which can accommodate 6 inputs — plug in your own iPod or MP3 player for a do-it-yourself music option.
  • The stage is also large enough that it can accommodate bands and DJ’s with their own sound systems.
  • Large commercial quality kitchen with a brand new 6 top gas range and oven and a commercial-sized refrigerator.
  • Full service wet bar with bartender.
  • Huge parking lot, large enough to accommodate very big events.
  • The heart of the ballroom is its 3/4-inch sprung maple dance floor, which is the only sprung wood dance floor in the La Crosse area.
